as an adult who suffered from unspeakable acts as a child, my feeling is that if for nothing else, this mock funeral and having the kids write down what they wanted to bury, shows them someone cares, someone's listening ..and that's a start..great show

So Donald Trump can grab someone by the pussy and brag about it & Joe Biden can't hug someone/kiss them in a fatherly way but yet somehow this is equal in importance. This is snowflake journalism that gives us normals a bad name.

The piece on school lock-down drills was heartbreaking. The US is failing the next generation in so many ways, but I fear this may be doing terrible damage.

Completely looks over Canadas roll in this. Even though since Canada has detained Meng Wanzhou for the United States in China two Canadians have been detained and a Canadians how was convicted for drug trafficking was resentenced for death, in apparent retaliation. Plus the diplomat has been fired over his comments about this. I question what other stories have information missing. Wanted this to be better.

I wrote my GRE analytical essay about "Walk This Way" by Aerosmith and Run DMC in 2003. This story really brought me back.

what i got form the maga repor is that the media is not going to take its time to gather all the facts before reporting. so we have to get used to it that they will report with without all the facts too outrageous and get clicks

The money he wants to use for a wall would be better spent on all of the highways and bridges that are currently falling down in the USA.

The president has a go fund me page for the boarder wall. So I don't think everyone see he is selfish as all out doors. This wall will cost the world money forever. We have to maintain this wall this takes away from bettering our own country. We have disable government members. Disabled children who we could use health care insurance, We could provide better education for the USA. 😫

I found this very enlightening. It seems like there's a great deal of miscommunication. I think that all of the parties involved should be clued in so that any future decisions can be done smoothly and with the least amount of casualties. Why can't all benefit? Why should any suffer?
